From the Gutter


I might be in the gutter now but I’m graduating high.

From these depths, I’m growing up and I intend to fly.

I had to hit the bottom hard, to understand my plight.

I cannot get much further down, so a bullet I will bite.

I will grow to reach my goals, stand up straight and tall.

Then when I’m big and happy, I’ll be careful not to fall.
